Some quilters prefer to "fully float" their quilt tops. This means that they do not attach their quilt to the quilt top roller. Instead, they allow it to drape over the backing and batting, and simply baste it to the quilt backing. That means the quilt top roller is not used for this method. Some quilters like to completely remove the quilt top roller when loading this way. The optional Texas Hold 'em Bracket mounts in place of the quilt top roller so that the roller brake still functions to hold the quilt backing roller firmly.
